At Pantbanken Sverige, you can quickly and easily borrow money, using an item as collateral. The company has been in business since 1866 and has pawnshops in most of the bigger swedish cities, and also in Helsinki. Pantbankens specialists provide free appraisals. Some of their shops are open on Saturdays.
Pantbanken believes that anything is possible. The most popular items pledged, however, are gold, silver, watches, electronic equipment, musical instruments, antiques, art, and other goods, which can be easily stored and have a resale value. For some items a receipt and certification is necessary.
First the appraisal is made, then your receipt is printed out and you receive your money. The pledged item is then carefully stored away and insured in compliance with laws governing pawn brokering. Information about loans and customers is confidential and protected by privacy laws.
